Yonkers: Tuesday 2/13 Analysis


Best Bet: PRINCE OF POPS N (12th)

Spot Play: MAINLAND KEY N (3rd)

MEET STATS: 19 - 110 / $200.30

BEST BETS: 4 - 10 / $22.90

Race 1

(4) FANCY FOOTWORK did not have the best of trips last week but this gelding is good enough to top these with Bartlett at the helm. (6) ACE OF CLUBS rallied strongly to nail down the show spot last time out; player. (3) KING ROYALTY gets post relief and that should help his cause; we shall see.

Race 2

(8) RUN AND TELL PAP makes his return to a flat mile. Veteran trotter has tactical speed and Brennan gets the assignment; possible. (3) MIGHTY SURF showed signs of life in her last try; threat. (1) NOBLE WARRAWEE should fare quite well from the pole position; not out of this.

Race 3

(3) MAINLAND KEY N put in a game effort last out to take third money. Gelding seems to be in good form, so if the right trip comes his way he can greet the cameraman for pictures. (2) SKY IS THE LIMIT was sent down the road last out for all the glory; repeat is not out of the question. (7) BEGINNERS LUCK posted an easy wire to wire victory last time around; post hurts but he is capable.

Race 4

(3) QUICK FUN N came from dead last turning for home to get up for show honors recently. Pacer seems to be heading in the right direction; factor. (2) TOWNSLIGHT HANOVER is a consistent 10-year-old that has fine speed and must be considered in all the exotic slots. (4) JK PATRIOT steps up in class but he is clearly knocking at the door; watch out.

Race 5

(7) SEEKING STEVEN flashed speed against tougher last out. At his best, this trotting gelding could take these to task. (3) MY LUCKY WORD just missed glory by a neck last time around; consider. (8) KRONWALL posted a sharp victory at this level in his last trip. He must be respected despite the move to door number eight.

Race 6

(5) SHE SAID catches a weak group of ladies and it is good to see Brennan back at the controls since he has the most success with this pacing mare. (2) BEACH SCENE gets serious post relief and Dube is back in the sulky; main danger. (3) SPRING LUCK did not fire in her last try but she could grab a share of the purse.

Race 7

(1) TAKETOTHESKY N retains the rail position and she was a good third last time out; gets the call. (2) MARVALOUS JET was nailed in deep stretch for win honors recently; main danger. (7) DILLY DALI closed well in her Freehold finale to grab second money; watch out.

Race 8

(1) AMANDEROSA moves down the ladder and stays on the fence. With the right trip she can top these. (3) CERTIFIED IDEAL did not have the best of trips last out but she is very capable of making a quick turnaround. (5) IDEAL PRINCESS gets class relief and Brennan stays in the bike; don't overlook.

Race 9

(4) CAPOZZO is clearly knocking at the door based on his last two starts. At his best, with a well-judged drive, he can make tonight a winning one. (2) ROCK TO GLORY should find the 2-hole and these to his liking; good to see Bartlett with the assignment. (1) BEYONDTHESILENCE N moves down in class and he draws the fence; must be considered.

Race 10

(3) TWIN B FAMOUS has put in two good efforts in a row and this 8-year-old now moves to door number three; can greet the cameraman for pictures. (1) KEYSTONE HONOR gets post relief and he is knocking at the door; big threat. (5) STELLAS PHELLA leaves the 8-hole and he could make some noise in this event.

Race 11

(4) ABERDEEN HANOVER might have been used up in the early stages and he was uncovered at the half-mile marker. But hey, he did hold on for the show spot last time around; can fire his best against these. (3) IRA CHIEF put in a mild rally for this money recently; player. (1) KOKANNE SEELSTER gets serious post relief and that might help his cause; maybe.

Race 12

(3) PRINCE OF POPS N leaves the 8-hole for a much better slot and he fits well in here. Good to see Brennan with the return call; the pick. (2) MCCLINCHIE N is clearly knocking at the door based on his last two trips to the post. (6) WINDS OF CHANGE showed signs of life in his last try; could move forward.
